Philips LPC210x cheap & quick start?

Threaded View
Hello,

we are looking for development tools (IDE and simple In-Circuit
Debugger) for the Philips LPC210x (ARM7) controller family,
particularly at the lower priced end. At the Philips homepage,
several systems are listed (mainly from the greater vendors like
Keil, Nohau, IAR, Ashling etc.).

Can someone recommend a good package to look at? Maybe there are
some more makers of "smaller" development tools which are not
listed there? (For example, I guess there is a free GCC compiler
available.)

Besides C/C++, are there any compilers for other languages (preferrably
Pascal)?

TIA,

I like the Rowley Associates CrossWorks package:

http://www.rowley.co.uk

It's based on the GNU tools but comes with their own IDE and excellent
debugger. It supports the ARM on-chip debug interface - I use it with my own
JTAG hardware.

There is a very active Yahoo support group:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/lpc2000 /

and a GNUARM group if you want to use the free GNU tools:

Thanks, I will have a deeper look at it.

I came across the lpc2000 group by the www.lpc2100.com website,
bit it was so unbelievable slooooooow that I couldn't retrieve
any useful information. I will give it a second try. (However,
web based groups are horrible anyway - a usenet group would be
far more efficient...)

Thanks,

The Ashling board (we distribute it,see www.sciopta.de) comes for a
reasonable price and is based on the GCC + onboard USB-jtag.

I guess any ARM pascal will work with more or less effort on this
chip.
But actually, I did not hear about a Pascal compiler for ARM so far.

I don't know exactly which board you are referring to, but the
Opella debugger looks like a useful tool for us...

This sounds like bad luck. If anyone comes across one, please let me know!

There is a GNU Pascal compiler:

http://www.gnu-pascal.de/gpc/h-index.html

It might be feasible to convert it into a cross-compiler for the ARM.

Another option is the GNU p2c translator. Actually, that might be the best
way.

Notes on GNU pascal are here..
http://www.dimi.uniud.it/labs/documentazione/gnu_pascal/2.0/gpc_toc.html

For notes on GNU Modula-2/ARM cross compiler see
http://floppsie.comp.glam.ac.uk/Glamorgan/gaius/web/gm2-arm.html
and there is

http://www.unet.univie.ac.at/~a9406973/modula2/index.html

Here, strannik looks intersting, it's a Multi-language system :
Modula-2(Oberon-2), C(C++), Pascal - open source, so could be
made into a cross compiler....[knowledge of Russian would help :)]

General lists here
http://www.thefreecountry.com/compilers/pascal.shtml
http://www.thefreecountry.com/compilers/modula2.shtml

and I see both GNU Modula-2 and GNU pascal recently built for the AMD 64
bit processors.

  For DEBUG I'd guess GDB would be well advanced.

Thanks for these notes. It'll take a while to read all those
pages :-).

However, AFAICS, there is no ready-to-use Pascal IDE for ARM7 yet...

If it is anything like the Gnu C compiler for ARM it is hopelessly
inefficient

gcc could be better, sure - but it's still good enough for serious work.

It is called ASK-2000.

Thanks for the info. I will also have a look at EWARM, seems like
a really cheap way to at least start with ARM programming.

It is hardly efficient.

Yes but it is not widely used.
